Perry, The Musical

SYNOPSIS


Perry de Leon, an incoming college student, is a typical teenager who has discovered the fun and the pull of his peers and revels at vices like smoking and drinking, shortly after his father Ricardo goes to Saudi Arabia to seek for a greener pasture.


Perla, the devoted mother to the family and to the church has always dreamed for Perry to enter the seminary. Perry, on the other hand, repels the mere thought of the holy place until he experiences the signs of his call, confusing him in the process. In the end, he surrenders to the divine invitation and decides to enter the seminary.


The plot thickens as Perry’s journey is highlighted by the people around him – his family, his barkada, his fellow seminarians, his friend priest and the manangs of the church.


Ricardo, who dreams to see his son become an engineer, chooses to stay abroad for many successive years because of a big promotion he badly needs to finance the education of his three sons. Ricardo’s absence and Perla’s fear that her husband will prevent Perry from pursuing his priestly vocation push her to lie about Perry’s education at the seminary.


A major conflict arises when the truth about Perry’s forthcoming ordination reaches Ricardo. The whole family is shaken upon the arrival of the enraged Ricardo, nearly cursing Perla and Perry to damnation.


Perry’s struggles become more nagging and soon finds himself at the crossroads once again.


Until everyone surrenders to the will of God.


The musical beautifully leads to a shining realization of God’s plan for Perry and the people he loves, and majestically ends with a heartwarming reconciliation and Perry’s grand ordination.
